Snapshots from Gizmodo's Gadget Exhibition

Friday night Gizmodo hosted an opening party for their gadget gallery in New York City. We took a look, camera in hand, at what the world of consumer electronics had once offered and will soon offer. The three day exhibit featured 40 products spanning close to five decades. The show in essence was a walking tour through the history of the digital age, with Apple prototypes from the 80s, AT&T's picture phone from the 1964 NY World's Fair, the first color TV, and Sony's original walkman. Foreign gadgets from China and Japan had been flown in, including flashlights that can burn paper.

After the jump a few snapshots of our favorite products from the show.
